That is a settnig change once the directory exists. If you are using an ftp program, right click on the directory you want to change and you should see a permission or chmod item. Select that and you can change the permissions. If not, go into your hosts control panel and there should be a way to change them from there.

Hi Jack, Thank you for answering. I did right click on the folder/doc and click on properties. A box comes up with Permissions: Owner, Group, All Users and an option of clicking Read, Write and Execute. There is no where to enter any 3 digit numbers nor do I see any. I'm lost!

This may confuse you more but if it doesn't then it will help you understand the permissions. Somewhere in there they had a screenshot where they set permissions to 755 you could just copy that.

Thank you for your help. I am looking over the information. It seems difficult getting help being such a beginner at this. I do appreciate it.

No problem, I know what its like to be a beginner, I just started learning PHP about 8 months ago and have taught myself everybit of it same with HTML, and some CSS, but that was 2 years ago. I learned alot of the PHP from modifying osCommerce so if you try hard enough you'll catch on, or maybe your not even interested in PHP, whatever. Oh and now since a few weeks ago, I started learning VisualBasic...lol so i guess I am multilingual, I know more than just English...lol

Your information was VERY helpful. I am very interested in learning as I have a web site that will hopefully be running with osCommerce. I have changed the settings (interesting I did not have the manual option which made it more confusing). I figured those boxes had something to do with it LOL :blink: I will now again attempt the install procedure. OHHH Boy.....

Thank you again VERY much.

The number is the same as the text but in a different format. If you look at the options, there are three groups. Each group has a Read, Write and Execute option. A value of 7 for a group means to turn them all on. A value of 5 means to set the first and last option. Explaining how the numering works is probably too much detail for you now. Hopefully the above helps though.
